ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan Monday said that his party has given 80 per cent tickets to those electoral candidates who will be contesting for the first time in the coming general elections.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad, he said this is beginning of a revolution in the country as the time-tested old faces, due to their corruption and bad governance, cannot bring about any change.

Khan said that party tickets have been given to those candidates who are recommended by local chapters of the party.

He said others are resorting to just sloganeering but his party has given around 35 per cent party tickets to those who are under 40 years of age. The PTI chief hoped that youth cadre of the party will bring about a massive change in the country.

He said that his party has ended the traditional politics of dynasty and revived politics of ideology in Pakistan. “By holding intra-party polls, we have questioned the very existence of family ltd parties,” he added.

His party, Khan said that after coming into power will eradicate corruption and will introduce reforms in the institutions.

The PTI chief also appealed to the nation to donate in his party’s “Pakistan fund” if they really want to bring about the change. “Candidates who spend 10 million rupees to come into power, make 10 times more during their rule,” he added– PPI/DawnNews
